Bucks' Antetokounmpo to miss game after having oral surgery

Reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo will miss the Milwaukee Bucks game Monday with the Toronto Raptors after having oral surgery.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. Reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo will miss the Milwaukee Bucks game Monday with the Toronto Raptors after having oral surgery.

Bucks coach Mike Budehnolzer said Monday it was uncertain whether Antetokounmpo would play in the teams final two seeding games Tuesday against the Washington Wizards and Thursday against the Memphis Grizzlies.

I believe hes going to be here in the arena today to support and be with his teammates, Budenholzer said. Well see how he responds, how he feels tomorrow.

Budenholzer said NBA protocols dealing with dental issues enabled Antetokounmpo to get treatment without having to spend time in quarantine.

The Bucks have clinched the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference for a second straight season.
